NEW EMPLOYEES TO UFV

Welcome to John da Costa, Team Lead, IT Service Desk   Hello, my name is John da Costa. I attended BCIT in the Information Technology Management Program and worked for 32 years at Save on Foods – first in retail and then in Head Office, IT support. I joined UFV in pursuit of professional development within a learning institution. My fondest memories were always within an academic environment, and being able to merge my career with a space that I value very much has always been a long-term goal of mine. I’m happily adjusting to the new work culture at UFV and hope to contribute to such a wonderful institution and team!
